    I am a convert to the wonderful world of Traktor and MP3's.

    Trouble is, same as everyone, I have a rather large collection of fantastic vinyl. I would like to record this vinyl to my Dell Laptop (using the microphone jack as an audio line in I presume) and rip to MP3 (for use with Traktor)

    There is a lot of software, free and to buy out there. Can I get some suggestions on which software gets the best results. Obviously I'm shooting for minimal loss of sound.

    Thanks.

    sound forge

    Sony's (formerly sonic foundry) Sound forge will do a nice job if you know what you are doing. It's not free but well worth the money. There are a few free apps out there that will do a nice job as well but i don't mind paying for a quality app. just my opinion......anyone else wanna add their 2 cents?
